to the successful killing of bin laden. senators john mccain, carl levin and diane feinstein sent a letter to sony. amy davidson is a senior editor at "the new yorker" magazine and wrote a column about it. good to have you here. so the senators, they came out staunchly against the film after seeing it saying it's perpetu e perpetuating a myth. your assessment of the film? are they right that the movie takes a little creative liberty with the tortures a sne s s ss? >> it did and there was an open letter saying the head of the cia had deep troubles with the ill families and not accurate in the description of what torture did for the united states. the reason they felt the need to speak out was because this was billed as the big movie that the cia cooperated with and the pentagon. opens with recordings of people dying in the world trade center and saying it's based on actual accounts and saying it has that and then make the case we needed torture to keep us safe, that torture got us bin laden, you could see why that's department lie disturbing if as people who have seen the intelligence say it's no
dianne feinstein, carl levin, as well as republican john mccain whose own experiences as a p.o.w. in vietnam have made him an outspoken critic of torture. now, since most people have not seen the film yet, let me explain a little bit. the torture scenes, which there are more than one show cia interrogators waterboarding, humiliating, and abusing detainees. in the movie, these interrogations do result in crucial information in the search for osama bin laden. now, i would not say that the film actually glorifies torture, but the cia operatives are not squeamish about what they're doing. at a later point in the film, one of the officials complained about president obama's decision to stop the detainee program. now, in a letter to sony, which is the studio behind the film, the senators say that "zero dark thirty" is, quote, perpetuating the myth that torture is effective. they argue that a still classified report proves they called the coercive interrogations did not result in any information that led to bin laden's capture. here's what else they had to say in the letter. they sa

conservative like a rush limbaugh, sean hannity, mark levine to even things out a little bit and challenge the democrat in the general election in ways that they don't. we had other stories that were big media stories in 2012. you remember the unfortunate shooting in aurora, colorado, where abc's brian ross, went on the air and looked up in the phone book and found a name that matched the alleged shooter and concluded, gee, he must be part of the tea party. this is the kind of stuff that passes for sober analysis with the mainstream media. there are many others but those two stand out in my mind immediately. jon: christie, your favorites of the year? >> well it is not a surprise i disagree with cal on this one. look, i think the biggest media failure of is the year is failure to report the extreme lurch to the right of the republican party, a party that had gone from being conservative opposition party to one that is more about the transvageal ultrasound, banning of contraception and one that stopped trying to problem solve and now more interested in obstruction. i think that is because th
because we used torture. >> mccain with senators dianne feinstein and carl levin wrote to sony complaining "zero dark thirty" has the potential to shape american public opinion in a disturbing and misleading manner. they asked sony to consider correcting the impression that c cia's use of interrogation techniques led to the capture of osama bin laden. she said showing the techniques was vital to the form. >> i think it was important for us to tell a true story. it's controversial but it's part of the history. >> part of history perhaps but only future historians might know how accurate holiday's first look at the search for bin laden actually is. for "cbs this morning," john blackstone cbs news. >> sony hat nos responded. senior correspondent john miller who once interviewed bin laden is a former director of cia national intelligence. we'll get the information from you now. how accurate is this portrayal? >> well the portrayal is extraordinarily accurate in the way that movies are accurate so all of that up to and including that one of the detainees was sub
